Basic Information

Overview

The NPIP was initiated to eliminate Pullorum Disease caused by Salmonella pullorum which was rampant in poultry, and could cause upwards of 80% mortality in baby poultry. The program was later extended and refined to include testing and monitoring for Salmonella typhoid, Salmonella enteritidis, Mycoplasma gallisepticum, Mycoplasma synoviae, Mycoplasma meleagridis, and Avian Influenza.
